that is not how you sentence

reasons I repeat things

  • I’m trying to tell you something but I don’t have words to say it.
  • I really like how it feels to say those words, and I’m stimming by repeating them.
  • I’m upset and trying to calm myself down. for me, when I’m upset like that, I’ll find a “good” piece of what I’m saying and repeat it in threes. (reasoning: threes are a “good number” and nothing bad happens in threes.)
  • I literally cannot stop. (I get hung up on words sometimes and can’t stop repeating them, even if I want my sentence to move on.)

95. “Can you please stop biting your lip…it’s distracting.”

Today marked your third week in your English 101 course, and you still hated everything about it. But school was school and you needed to pass the course in order to move on with your degree. So here you were, sitting on the couch for the third night in a row while sitting tea and writing notes in a mess while you had twenty tabs open on your laptop. 

How to make a sentence, you read the title of your next chapter. Yup, you read it right, about twenty pages on how to properly produce a structured sentence. Shutting your eyes, you lean back against your couch and take a moment to yourself. Only that moment is disrupted by what you were hoping with the Chinese delivery guy. 

You push everything off your lap and set it on the coffee table - which was already a mess - before making a mad dash to the front door of your small studio apartment. Not bothering to look through the peephole, you open the door and are met with a familiar face instead of the delivery guy.

6 tips to writing your first draft

‣ Write how you want the story to begin and end. Just a few sentences that will summarize what changes happen in the novel, talk it over with some friends to have a better idea of the plot.
‣ Write an outline (you don’t have to follow the outline to a T, there will be change ps as you go along)
‣ Don’t go back and edit in the first draft this could make you feel discouraged. It probably won’t be the best but wait until the whole story is down before you rework it.
‣ Place holders can be used if you don’t know information. Researching everything can slow down the process so use a place holder so you know where you need to go back and edit once the first draft is done.
‣ Have daily goals. Whether it’s to write an hour a day or write 1000 words a day daily goals help in the short term.
‣ Have a deadline. I myself have 100 days to write a first draft, I know it will be difficult but having it there will pressure me into writing so it gets completed.

Your eyes emit a most fascinating sparkle.

I have been smitten so often by a glance,
a glare; a revealing of some sorts;

that which remains hidden
within the silent breaths
taken between

lingering contact
conveying the real message,

yet as I aged, the eyes around me turned
bland, and dull; lifeless.

I’ve noticed it happen to my own.

But it hasn’t happened
to yours.

There’s a hint of longing, of burning; a lust
for life I want to but cannot
put my finger on.

Your eyes emit a most fascinating sparkle,
may I ask how you’ve managed to keep it?

my thing

Pairing:  Darcy Lewis/Loki
For:  @evolution-of-magic
Prompt:  #19.  Knitting

“I could just summon a double and have him finish this for you.  And then you and could…”  Loki trailed off, letting his wandering fingers finish the thought he’d started with his lips.

“Do you know how to knit?” Darcy asked.  "Or better yet, does your double know how to knit? Because that’d be amazing.  My wrist is aching.“  

"I’m sure he could pick it up soon enough…” Loki murmured.  

“Yeah.  No dice.  I can’t afford to let these stitches slip at all.  I’m almost done, I promise.  And then we can have all the sex you want.”  

“You know… I was being vague for a reason, darling…” he reached up to tuck a strand of her hair behind her ear.  

“I know.  And I was being blunt.  It’s kind of my thing.”  

“That it is…”

Even if you don't reply to all of them ((completely understandable, some just aren't worth replying to or there are just too many)) I love how much you interact with your fans!! There are so many SMIs that don't even bother speaking to their fans, and I'm glad you're not one of them!!

y'all have no idea how hard it I stopped just type out a sentence. I really am trying bc I love y'all and y'all are my rock and I know ur worried about me.

Jotting down another sentence for how Peter’s habits include a whole lot of remembering and keeping alive the people he loved and lost (the music from both Walkman and Zune are a present from Meredith and Yondu, after all), I suddenly realized that some of the other Guardians, mainly Rocket, would probably find this weird in the beginning – because Groot is newborn and doesn’t remember his old life, Drax lost his old life, Gamora’s parents were killed by Thanos, and Rocket never even had parents to begin with.

I just – I just want Peter to share his parents, or at least their memory, with all of the Guardians. “My parents are your parents” so to speak. Yondu already parented all of the Guardians he met, and I bet everything that Meredith would have done the same.

Parents for everyone.

(Especially Rocket, heck, that poor guy has an absolutely awful life before meeting the others.)

So someone on Tumblr asked for beta readers and I volunteered. But they have recently emailed me the sections they want read and in all honesty it is terrible. Not a single sentence makes sense, the characters lack emotion and it is painful to read. How do I tell them this without being a jerk?

Tomorrow I will have the answers to all your questions. In a mere 12 hours, my video on writing a critique shall be posted, where I cover such topics as writing a good critique without sounding like a jerk. You actually timed this question quite perfectly.

(although also you can say the book isn’t for you and stop beta reading if you don’t want to continue)

LEELA your new fic is beautiful and i'm just... honestly astounded how effortless and emotional your writing seems and the flow of words and sentences is so harmonious and peaceful in such a poignant way i'm ahhhhhh!!! i read you said u researched the trip from edinburgh to london - can u point me in the direction of where i could potentially buy tickets for this train ride? a friend of mine and i are gonna travel around GB next year and we've talked about taking the scenic train route 1/2

and you fic really sparked something in me and i really really wanna experience this. anyway yeah, you’re amazing and i love you and i hope your lips have been graced with a beautiful smile today - u so deserve it <3 

yES i was looking at the virgin trains EC (east coast) routes, and i chose their 5:40-5:48 am departure times for the route that i used in the fic, bc thats the one that seemed to go along the north sea rather than just going roughly straight south. but you can browse through their various routes and times and whatnot on their website here!!!! however i think these are some of the more expensive trains that exist so it might be good to start with a general google search of trains from edinburgh to london and see what results come up, especially if youre traveling on a budget! (also if any british ppl are reading this and have more resources/tips feel free to share in the comments!!) 

ahhhh im sooooooooo absolutely floored by this message by the way :( thank you so so so much for all the lovely words about my writing and the fic. i can’t ask for anything more than the fact that it made you feel things, and especially that it gave you the desire to travel this route :( im honestly like not even sure how to process how that makes me feel but im just rly rly overwhelmed and grateful to you. i hope you have so much fun on your trip and tell your friend i say hi and maybe tag me in a post (or send me another anon) or something even if it’s next year, if you do end up taking the journey!!!!!!!! sending you so much love and i hope you have a gorgeous day xx

Every month (instead of tests) in my school we're spsd to find a political article and write if (and why) we agree/don't agree with it. I have a hard time understanding these articles bc they're written in a very formal language. I read one sentence a few times and don't get anything (at the same time wasting a lot of energy and practically having meltdowns). Do you maybe have any tips on reading complicated stuff? Idk how am I spsd to understand the article.

You could try searching for simplified articles or explanations of articles. 

You could try looking up a range of opinions on articles, or asking a range of people what they think about it, as it might be easier to understand in terms of how other people have interpreted it and what they think about it. 

You could also ask a family member or friend to explain things or ask their opinions on articles to help you figure out how they have interpreted the information available.

It would probably be a good idea to talk to someone at school about it, as they might be able to offer accommodations to help support you. This might include providing you with easier-to-understand information directly, or helping you to find easier-to-understand information, giving you more support by going through the information with you and explaining things, letting you approach it from a different angle, or even giving you alternative assignments.

If you are looking at information online it might be better to print things off so that you can physically mark the paper. You could highlight bits you do understand in one colour and highlight bits you don’t understand in another. This might help you figure out what words or concepts you need to look up.

Getting someone to explain things or finding an explanation beforehand might also help you to understand more of what you’re reading.

Anon said: Just take it really slow. Instead of trying to understand a WHOLE sentence, read the 1st word, and define it. Then the 2nd, define that. ask what they both mean TOGETHER. Then keep going. E.g.: “Government involves power.” Define government. Define involves. Put the meanings together. Define power. Then put all 3 meanings together. It may seem frustratingly slow at first but trust me you’ll get better!! This is the method I use to read older English & it works :)

you know how… youre scrolling down the dash… and you instinctively scroll past a post without really looking at it because in the 16th of a second that you glanced at it you knew it wouldnt interest you? im fascinated by that phenomenon. how is it that i can tell with such accuracy that i won’t like a post?? every so often i go back and look at one of these posts i instinctively skipped and they’re *always* uninteresting to me. like my instinctive 16th-of-a-second impulse is *always* correct. How??? i didn’t even stop to read the first sentence! wild.

Babe… Help?

3. “Think i could fit in that box?”

Draco x reader

Requested: “Could I get a Draco x Reader with prompts number 3, 8 & 17? Thank you in advance!”

A/N: Hello love! Sorry this took so long, I had to think on how to write this well. Hopefully you enjoyed!

Also I’m assuming your gender is female so don’t sue me. 😂😂

Word Count:

Warnings: None , fluff

“Think I could fit In that box?” that sentence, that tiny little combination of words. That is how this all started.

You see, (Y/N) she had this nick about trying to fit in, or between things. Often leading to broken glasses, or a very sore hip.

Her boyfriend, Draco Malfoy being the angsty death eater he is decided that tonight would be the perfect night to curl up and watch heart wrenching movies about true love, history and team spirit.

But, his beautiful , magnificent little plum wasn’t. Paying. Attention.

No, instead she was staring at a bloody Tv box.

Draco let out an exaggerated sigh, turning so that he could completely face her. “Are you even paying attention?”

“..Not entirely, no.”

“Seriously? What couldn’t possibly be something interesting for you to miss Angelica getting her heartbroken over that -”

(Y/N) put up a single digit, cutting off her partners rant. “Shh, I have something more important.”

“Oh?” Malfoy replied with his usual , cocky tone. “And what might that be?”

“Do you think I could fit in that box?”

Draco froze, just kinda staring at his lovers form in confusion. “What?”

“Do you think I could fit in that box?” She replied finally taking her eyes off of the cardboard package and over to Draco.

“You’re serious aren’t you?” He didn’t know why he asked, The slight sparkle in her normally calm (Y/E/C) eyes said it all. Mischeif was soon approaching.

A quick grin spread across the girls face as she sprung into action, butt held high as she got ready to jump. “I’ll take that as a yes then!”

Without another word she leaped across the room, straight into the box creating a loud ‘thud’. Draco had shielded his eyes, not wanting to see his loved on smash her head in against the floor.

“(Y/n)?..” Draco called out to no avail. Slowly he moved his arm out of his way to see the young (Your House)’s legs sticking out of a very tall, very sturdy and very torn box.

“ Hey um.. Draco, dear my beautiful handsome man.. Please help me? I’m stuck.”

Draco chuckled to himself before lifting off of the bed he was sitting on. “You got yourself into this mess, you can get yourself out.”

“What do you mean?.. Babe? Babe, you there? This isn’t funny Draco help!”



(A/N: I didn’t know where to leave this off so here you go! if i edit I will tell you, bye! Also its like 12 end im sleepy so hopefully this isnt trash.)

Basically, I want to see how many people can finish this sentence and prove they are Australian just because I’m bored and for some reason, this has been in my head all day and I’m just like I don’t even know why

You look so hot today Rhonda…

i lost my voice for a week & nobody noticed because i never freaking talk

Partner and I have been rewatching The Two Towers for the first time in a long time.

anyway, one thing that has always been weird for me is Eomer giving Hasufel and Arod to random strangers, just like that.  Just giving them away, two horses, to a trio of foreign travelers he just met and had suspected of being spies.

like.  what?  This is Rohan.  Horses are the thing you value above all else, I don’t care if their riders are dead, even if their riders don’t have actual heirs somewhere to whom ownership would pass (or Rohirric inheritance law works differently and ownership has somehow defaulted to their éored’s commander, IDK), you’re still a calvary force planning to see a lot more battle in the near future, chances are high you’re going to end up with horseless riders who’ll need them.

this time I actually processed the fact, though, that Eomer believes they’ve inadvertantly killed two innocents, prisoners of the orcs, the beloved companions of these travelers.

The horses aren’t a gift.  They’re weregild.
